Summary

It's chocks away once again as Dan Dare, Pilot of the Future, returns! First published in classic British comicEagle, this is perhaps the most seminal adventure of one of Britain's best-loved characters, presented in a gorgeous library edition. When transmissions are disrupted throughout the Solar System and spaceships including one carrying Sir Hubert disappear, Dan and Co set out to discover what's going on. They find a fleet of huge alien craft containing peaceful aquatic creatures called Cosmobes, who are fleeing from another aquatic race, the warlike Pescods. But the Pescods have a deadly weapon, the "Crimson Death"... and they're heading for Earth! Will Dan and his crew be able to once again save the day?

Author Biography

Frank Hampson is perhaps best known as the creator and original artist for Dan Dare, but he also illustrated a number of children’s books for Ladybird. Dan Dare was first published in the British comic, The Eagle, in April 1950 and was last published as an ongoing series in 1996 — although Dan had undergone more than a few changes by then.
